I met her on the landing and she handed me a tenner from her savings, saying 'This is for all the kind things you do for me'. I swear to god, I thought I'd burst into tears. I could feel my eyes well up. 100% good form.
I've heard a few different versions of that story over the last few years.

You really learn people's true colours when you move away and they don't give a crap about how you are doing

Makes me not want to ever come home!

Going to take this chance to vent.

I've been in a horrible state over the last few days. Because of personal problems, I had to forego asking out a wonderful girl on Friday. Because I have family problems which basically means asking out a girl would result in untold chaos at home, I had to let the girl go. Didn't say goodbye despite it being her last day. Couldn't bare to. What made it worse was I know she liked me, and although I don't want to come across like some immature teenager, I don't think I've ever felt the same way about a girl as I did her.

Just been really down about it since Friday though. I've always been positive and optimistic as a person. But for 48 hours, I've just felt so, so depressed. Lying in bed last night, it was all I could do to hold back just breaking down (manly, I know ). The thought that I'll never see the girl again has been close to just wanting to lie down and give up. On top of that, everything just keeps going against me. Not really sure how much more I can take...

She's kept me sane in work over the last few weeks. The way I work, I have quite a bit of down time between things, and so did she, so we kept each other company. Now, the thoughts of going back into work are ones I dread.

I have to say, I feel like life has been pretty good to me recently.
Have a great girlfriend, who despite the fact that we're temporarily geographically separated, still makes me smile and feel happy each and every day. Can't wait to go see her when I take my holiday!
Just finished my car payments. Got a tiny marine fish tank which looks amazing.
Had no health problems in quite some time.

All in all, I'm feeling faboosh!

Kind of up and down.Things are ok with me in general, but lately, for a while in fact I kinda feel like Im going nowhere , and my lack of drive and ambition is beginning to frustrate me. Ive no relationship, live in a little dive of a flat, very little money, went back to college recently to do a course but I dont really like it all that much.Also, friendships are kind of drifting becoming more into myself and just doing my own thing. I think secretly my family see me as a bit of a failure and I feel like the next few years will decide whether I am or not. Im sure Ill be ok, but its just frustrating that I can the as motivated as other people seem to be.

I had such a great day! And I'm happy and even posting this from the library!

It was 15 degrees and sunny Didn't need a coat wow.

Got on well at my doctor's appointment and made appointments for loads of health stuff I can get done free here on the amazing Canadian health system- Cause Ireland is crap!

Got loads of good newses, did really well in an assignment I was worried about, got a few hours highly overpaid work supervising exams this weekend. Got a nice haircut, I was so damn shaggy! Petted a really big fluffy Newfie dog! Had a super lovely lunch in a vegetarian hippy health place, so unlike me!

Yay me!

Great form. Got me a new job.

I've spent 4.5 years working three shifts in a job that's half engineering/half IT support. It was sold as a stepping stone to a proper controls engineering job. Unfortunately for me, the company has gone through a lot of changes since I got here which effectively meant there were none of these jobs available.

One finally came up. I was recommended for it, interviewed and now have it. It's good to know that my good work over the past number of years has been noticed and I've gotten my reward. So in a few weeks, I'll no longer be working nights and evenings. Nights I don't mind too much except that you're on a different schedule to the rest of the world. Evenings I detest and I couldn't be happier about never working them again. There's a trade-off in that I have to work every second weekend but, again, it's only day work so I'm ok with it.

Also really excited at the change. I've become a bit bored with the limited scope of my current job and it was very swiftly approaching the time where I'd have to leave if nothing came up. I'm happy that I haven't had to as I like the company I work for and the work-life balance it affords me.

So all change and all very exciting.

Was in great form yesterday thesis bound and put in. Turned down three jobs to work on it last week. Came back to my college house and it was an awful kip cleaned it all up and now relaxing till I start studying for exams! Put my name in for Student Union President next year. Got offered an internship as well. Just wish I had some money now sick of scrapping. Hopefully have a job starting in July wondering could I claim the dole for the month of June when I finish exams in May. Or just win the lotto!
